At The Pumpkin Patch

Our requirement for this biweekly challenge sponsored by Marge was to create a card/project using fall colors.  We took the baby to the pumpkin patch at Mother Nature's Farm last year to pick his pumpkin and we might do it again this year. 
The main background and the 10x10" insert are from Basic Grey's Curio paper pack. I fussy cut the pumpkins and the scarecrow from a Halloween designer paper from Reminisce for my embellishments.  The paper lace, postage stamp and label are stickers from the Curio paper pack.  I added Stickles for sparkle.

A Card Inspired by Chocolate

Raquel from our DT at My Sheri Crafts came up with this delicious challenge in celebration of National S'mores Day.  I used the equally yummy Sweet Stack from DCWV for this card.  The cupcake was cut at 2 1/2" using the Sweet Treats Cricut Cartridge.  I added Liquid Pearls along the scalloped frame, the chocolate layer of the cupcake and the punched border. Stickles were added on the heart topper.  The frames were cut using Spellbinders dies. I added Baker's twine and chocolate brown borders punched using a Martha Stewart punch on the accent panel.  I also used the matching Martha Stewart punch for the corners of the card.

Back to School With My Sheri Crafts

This another project for Kenzo Gunner's future teacher.  :-)  Glenda is hosting for this week, and she came up with our challenge theme: "Back to School", and we are to feature a bus or a schoolhouse.  I used paper from Prima for the background.  The schoolhouse was cut at 2 1/2" using the Heritage Cricut cartridge.  I cut a label using a Sizzix die and placed a Tim Holtz inside it.  I added leaf flourishes cut using Cheery Lynn dies, roses from Kaisercraft, and frames for the schoolhouse, cut using Spellbinders dies. I added faux pearls on the scalloped frame using Viva Decor Pearl pen.
